Q: How do I find companies that have affiliate programs?
A: One thing you could do is just go into Google and search for “affiliate directory.” You’ll then see a list of the leading affiliate directories, which you can use to find companies by name and category that offer affiliate programs.
Also, you could go to the bigger affiliate networks, such as Commission Junction, Kolimbo, LinkShare, Performics, ShareASale, zanox, etc.
Personally, I go to the companies I want to promote with the hope that they have an affiliate program.
Te quickest way to find out if they have an affiliate program is to take a look at the footer of their Web site. Generally, they will have a link that says “Affiliate Program” or “Affiliates” that leads to details about their affiliate program.
Additionally, check the search engines for the category you are seeking. So if you are looking for affiliate programs that sell shoes, search for shoe affiliate in the search engines.
Those techniques ought to help you find the information you need.
